James Cook University is partnering with the University of Queensland and Curtin University in the Resources Technology and Critical Minerals Trailblazer.

The Trailblazer is part of the Australian Government’s Department of Education Trailblazer Universities Program.  

The purpose of the Trailblazer is to:

  • Commercialise university innovations and build lasting research and industry capability.
  • Accelerate innovation and industry technology readiness to build new pathways and groundbreaking ways of working.
  • Build sustainable university transformation to change the way industry-led research is embedded, facilitated, taught and rewarded.

The program drives engagement between universities and stakeholders from industry and education and provides funding support for :

  • Industry-led research projects related to critical minerals and resources technology
  • Engagement with schools and the VET sector

Some of our projects under development here.

Our inaugural JCU Trailblazer Stakeholder Forum will be held in Townsville on 25 September 2024.
